Repressed Cinema presents a double dose of SCI-FI: Damon Packard’s SPACE DISCO ONE & A SURPRISE 16MM SCI-FI TV SHOW!
Damon Packard is one of the most exciting underground film directors today and his movies remain very approachable. They are filled with his own unique vision and a healthy dose of nods to pop culture: sci fi movies of the 1970’s collide with his own narratives in this visually stunning piece. SPACE DISCO ONE (2007) is a sequel to both “Logan’s Run” and “1984” at the same time with Orwell’s Winston Smith running into the daughters of Logan 5 and Francis 7 as they’re busy running about a park firing off laser beams at one another. It’s not until they meet that Winston realizes they’re actually all fictional characters in a movie. When not discussing “Battlestar Galactica” with Stargirl 7 and Francis 8, Winston makes frequent visits to the Ministry of Truth – known to you and I as Universal Citywalk. And did we mention the roller rink in space that people have to skate on to get to Earth?
